University of Melbourne

Churchie has secured an Australian Research Council Linkage grant that will evaluate Twenty-first Century Learning Environments. This innovative project will research which learning environments are the most appropriate for Twenty-first Century learning in a digital and knowledge age.

The focus will be on: the links between space and pedagogy; evaluating the effectiveness of differing classroom designs in improving student behaviours, engagement and learning outcomes and; evaluating the effectiveness of technology enhanced learning environments as students transitions into higher education.

Learn more about the research on learning environments through Churchie's Research Centre.
